At Calvary Christian School, we believe that physical activity is an important part of life-long health. As such, we encourage athletic participation at all grade levels and have multiple opportunities throughout each year for students to be part of a team.
Christian Winner’s Creed: “I believe that a true winner always does his best; never to the glory of self, but always to the glory of God. With the Lord’s help, I will strive to be a true winner today.”
Calvary’s athletic teams provide students with the opportunity to develop their God-given abilities while encouraging Christ-like character during competition. Young men compete in soccer, basketball, and baseball, while the ladies participate in volleyball, basketball, and soccer. Calvary competes in the South Carolina Associations for Christian School league for Junior Varsity and High School Sports.
